I just wanted to post a reply regarding a missing dvd/cd in the ?My Computer? & in the ?Device Manager?. I bought my Acer5610z in September of 2007, about March of 2008 I was unable to use my dvd/cd because it was not being recognized by the computer. This was very frusterating as I like to back up files often. I have tried EVERYTHING! 1)I have tried to mess with the registry as suggested by several sites.. NOTHING 2)I have tried to uninstall any applications which would mess with my player such as ITunes..etc.. NOTHING 3)I would have tried to restore my settings back to factory default but I cannot remember my freaking password for erecovery.. So this was not, nor is it still an option for me. (Anyone who reads this and knows a lil trick for me to fix that issue please feel free to let me know. thanks.. Anyways.. I found this website and got very excited because I seen all the great comments and thought to myself, now maybe after about a year (give or take)I might be able to burn cds again! You will never guess how I fixed this issue!!! *I first took out several screws on the back of my laptop..scared I was gonna mess up my comp.. but didn?t.. whew.. For the life of me I could not find a way to access the dvd disk drive to ensure things were plugged in properly. (I never messed with a laptop yet) I couldn?t find it.. Then my lover found a site online which detailed how to remove the dvd/cd drive to ensure it is plugged in all the way, sound scary? meh.. Turns out all you have to do is eject the disk (use paperclip into hole) and you can gently pull on the metal that you see holding the edge of the dvd player. Pull it all the way out (its a plug n play so don?t worry about cords)on my Aspire 5610z anyways CHECK YOUR SYSTEM DETAILS TO ENSURE IT DOES NOT COME WITH CORDS) Replace the dvd/cd back into the slot and press firmly but not too firm to break it (you want to make sure its plugged in all the way) Reboot.. Voiiiiiila! xoxox Hope this helps someone out there and if so spread the news.. I looked forever for this stupidly simple alternative to messing with the registry etc..

My Vaio is not reading blank DVD's. Thus i am unable to burn the data using the DVD. I have MATSHITA DCD RAM UJ870QJ


This is a common problem on Vaios, and typically comes from one of two causes.

Try the following two steps (in order)

Step 1 Delete Filter Drivers
======================
1. Click Start, type regedit and press ENTER.

2. Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

3. Right click the {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} entry, choose "Export", select Desktop in the Save in box and type backup in File Name. Click Save.

Please Note: The backup file is on the Desktop and named backup.reg. We can simply restore the registry by double-clicking the backup.reg file.

4. Highlight this key ({4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}), on the right pane, and then check if Upperfilters and Lowerfilters value are present. If so, please right click on the values and select "Delete" to remove them.

5. Restart the computer


If this works, then there's no need to do step 2 below




Step 2: Reinstall the DVDRAM
======================
1. Click Start, type devmgmt.msc and press Enter.
2. Expand DVD/CD-ROM drives.
3. Right-click the DVDRAM and click Uninstall.
4. Restart the computer.

Problems with my CD-RW\DVD-R


Maybe it's time to replace but try this last thing before opening the trash can lid:- Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers.
